Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren’s recipes sound familiar

Elizabeth Warren, the fake Indian, has another problem with the Pow Wow Chow cookbook.
It seems that at least two of her special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families are identical to ones from The New York Times [NYT] that were printed in 1979.
And theyre not just from any eatery either the recipes came from Le Pavillon, the fabulous French restaurant that domin-ated le haute cuisine in Man-- hattan from 1941 to 1966.
Amazing, too, that Grannys recipes for Crab With Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing, and Cold Omelets With Crab Meat, while no doubt popular along the Trail of Tears, were likewise tres populaire with Le Pavillons Beaut-iful People clientele.
As Pierre Franey, the Pav-illon chef and original author of the recipes put it, The dish was a great favorite of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter.
Cole Porter was an Indian? Who knew?
Grannys 1984 Crab With Tom-ato Mayonnaise Dressing is a word-for-word recreation of Franeys 1979 recipe. And I do mean, word for word.
As for Cold Omelets With Crab Meat, its more of the same.
Franey: Use a small omelet pan or, preferably, a seven-inch Teflon pan.
Warren: Use a small omelet pan or, preferably, a seven-inch Teflon pan.
Franey: Heat about one-half teaspoon butter in the pan.
Warren: Heat about one-half teaspoon butter in the pan.
A call to the Warren campaign seeking comment on the uncanny similarities between the two recipes was not returned.
There are also some questions about a third recipe, Herbed Tom-atoes. That one includes a seldom-used phrase, Add tomatoes cored-side down.
We Googled that phrase and came upon part of a 1959 recipe from Better Homes & Gardens. By press time, we hadnt found the actual recipe.
So lets review. First she was an Indian, then she wasnt. First she was poor in her childhood, then she became middle-class. Shes not rich, but she is worth up to $14.6 million, and her wigwam is assessed at $1.7 million.
Meanwhile, it appears Granny must have known that this fake-Indian cloud was hanging over her. On the page describing her induction last year into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, it says, She proudly tells everyone ... she is an Okie to my toes. ... Being an Okie keeps me grounded.
Im going to have to refer this question to Merle Haggard, who wrote Okie from Muskogee. Do real Okies like cold omelets, Merle? Do real Okies lift recipes calling for cognac from hoity-toity French restaurants in New York?
No? Well, la-de-da Harvard professors do
I knew that Buffalo chip stew recipe sounded familiar.
The one thing that often trips these liberals up is when they're not satisfied with pulling the wool over society in their quest for personal wealth is that they make the mistake of thinking that success will carry over to public success. They can never get enough.
“Do real Okies like cold omelets...”
Only if it comes with biskets and gravy.
Is there a recipe in there for roasted forked tongue?
The comment section under the article is great:
Here’s a keeper ;>)
Lizzie Warren’s Thanksgiving Day Roast Turkey Stew
Substitute bull for turkey
1 whole chicken
1 can Spam
2 cups firewater
heap of dog chow (dry)
1/32 of a Turnip 1/32nd of a beet, 1/32nd of a parsnip, 1/32nd of a rutabega (hat-tip to James Taranto)
8 slices forked tongue
1/2 cup sour grapes
Hair of dog
Eye of Newt
1 stick Halvah
4 grains of salt
Lard crock-pot generously with pork. Set aside.
Cut chicken in half: keep left side, smear right with anything handy, then discard.
Slice bull thickly and pile very high
Mix the rest of ingredients all together (discard grains of salt)
Cook in oven until half baked
Garnish with diverse selection of fruits and nuts
If serving company - throw the whole mess out and send to out to Whole Foods for real meal
(Tell guests recipe is from NY Times)
Serve with a good Jewish whine
Distribute to guests according to income
Send food bill to U.S. taxpayers
(and don’t forget not to say grace)
Sounds like Warren’s recipes are about as authentic as her claimed ancestry.
My Dad used to tell us that we were 1/32nd Indian. The story was that one of the grandfathers was married to a full-blood. Dad and most of the family of his generation and earlier died decades ago, so we have no one to really verify the story.
Recently, a distant relative did a family history that included tracing Dad’s paternal ancestry back to South Carolina in the mid-1700s.
No ‘Native American’ was found.
I recently did some research on Dad’s maternal ancestry back to Ireland in the late 1700s.
Again, no ‘Native American’ was found.
I do recall a few photographs that included a middle-aged NA woman. The photos were taken in the early part of the 1900s. They didn’t have any identification written on them, but they was in the collection of ‘family photos’ that the family had. That box of photos, however, was lost in the late 1960s during a family move. No one in the family seemed to know who that NA woman was, what her relationship to the family was, or why she was in some photos in the family collection.
I find it odd that as a Democrat she claims to be an Indian instead of a Native American.
Pow Wow Chow Cookbook...scroll down for a good laugh.
Besides her blatant Socialist beliefs.....is there ONE thing genuine whatsoever about this wench???????
“Revenge is a dish best served cold.” - Les Liasons Dangereuses; Pierre Ambroise Francois Choderios de LaClos (1741-1803)
“EVERYTHING about socialism is sham and affectation.” - 23.11 Ch23 Evil; Economic Harmonies; Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)
DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic.
“Admirers of Pow Wow Chow may also enjoy Bow Wow Chow, a Indonesian-influenced cookbook from a former professor now in politics.”
It's at least 900 miles to the ocean from there...
True to it's origins this delightful thirst quencher has little bits of black char from Yak chips.
Crawdads would do fine, or ground squirrels maybe.
I thoroughly enjoy the recipes here. My favorite one is called "Diversity Dish." This was contributed by the world's only confirmed blond-haired, blue-eyed Cherokee who used her tomahawk to dig this up from her Oklahoma archives. You start out with 10 quarts of sanctimony, add in a gallon of hypocrisy, throw in a few fables (I recommend the "Family Lore" brand available in Cambridge), add a pinch of whining (1/32 ounce will work), toss in a paleface poseur and a large measure of insufferability. No integrity required. And there you have it: political career implosion. Great for faculty lounge gatherings and unearned academic advancement.
There is no such thing as a recipe book that has nothing but original recipe’s in it.
I know you did-n’t write the ar-ticle, but what’s with the hy-phen-ating every-thing?
(Is this a subtle dig at being a hyphenated American? I would have thought that at her age, she would have lost her hyphen by now.)
I had a Yak burger in Tibet.
Scott Brown has got to be giddy. Probably telling his staff “Nobody pinch me”.
